13 Responses To "Why Are You Still Single?" To Remind You How Good You Have It
If you've ever wondered "Why am I single?" this new hashtag will definitely make you smile. People are tweeting #WhyImStillSingleIn4Words and the answers are glorious. Sometimes, Twitter is just the gift that keeps on giving.
I know that the responses are (mostly) joking about it, but still, it's worth mentioning that there's absolutely nothing wrong with being single — and that being single doesn't mean you're lonely, undateable, or incomplete in any way. It's a totally legit life choice. And even if it's not a long-term life choice and more of a brief phase in your life, being single can teach you so much. Plus, being single always beats being in a bad relationship. "I'd rather be single, in a comfortable relationship with myself, than trapped in a dysfunctional, toxic relationship with someone else," certified relationship coach Rosalind Sedacca tells Bustle. "Being single gives me freedom so I don't waste time or energy on a relationship partner who doesn't value me and my attributes. I've given up drama and appreciate my life as it is now." Boom.
So if you've ever felt like the only single person left in the world, this list will remind you that you definitely are not. There are other people out there who understand that food is always more important than people or that your duvet is your bestie. It's all good.
